There are so many ignorant people representing others in our Federal Government and most come from the Republican Party. Enter AZ Congressman Paul Gosar. He’s clearly living in the 18th century. Here’s what he said to a representative of the Arizona White Mountain Apache Tribe , “You’re still wards of the federal government.”
Seriously, that’s what he told him.
Did he snooze through American History class?
Or was he home schooled?
The Rocky Mountains Times reports, ‘The Arizona representative’s “wards of the federal government” comment was true once upon a time… nearly two centuries ago. In the Supreme Court’s 1831 decision in Cherokee Nation v. State of Georgia, Chief Justice John Marshall wrote that Native American tribes be named “domestic dependent nations” because they “look to our government for protection; rely upon its kindness and its power; appeal to it for relief to their wants; and address the President as their great father.”,
I doubt seriously that Rep. Gosar refers to President Obama as ‘the great father.’
So goes life here in the colonies…
